Mexico/Moving to Mexico, Tehuacan Puebla

The rules on CURP have changed. Now, a foreigner cannot go to the municipal CURP office, but must go to the immigration office. In Tehuacan, it is at the corner of Independence Oriente (main drag running through Tehuacan west to east) and corner of Calle 9 Norte, east of the Zocalo a short distance.

I suspect this is because the Municipio offices cannot handle CURP. I tried, and the woman there told me I had to get my birth certificate registered in Mexico, which I do not think a foreigner can do, but that is what foreign born kids of Mexicans have to do.  She simply did not know how to do a foreigner at all.  I still haven't got my CURP, but will try again next week when my wife goes to the stated office to renew her Mexican passport.
